AbstractA late-Holocene fall in relative sea level in northwest Scotland, from ca. 1.3mm yr-1 to ca. 1.0 mm yr-1, is interpreted from lithostratigraphic, biostratigraphic, chronostratigraphic and numerical analyses of fossil tidal marsh and acidic peat bog communities elevated by isostatic uplift. Pollen, diatom and stratigraphic data from contemporary depositional environments are used to define the indicative range (±0.2 m) and reference water level (mean high water of spring tides or highest astronomical tide) of thirteen dated sea-level index points. No Holocene intertidal sediments are recorded above + 7.7 m OD and all sea-level index points are younger than ca. 4 kyr B.P. In parts of Kentra Moss, beyond the limit of Holocene intertidal clastic sedimentation, raised bog communities were established by at least 8.3 kyr B.P. These age and altitude parameters differ from those interpolated for the "Main Postglacial Shoreline", but support a regional model in which isostatic uplift continues at present in the Kentra Moss area. © 1995.
